In which Hank sings a song about a song about a book about a wizard.

LYRICS
C-Am-F-G
One tuesday the phone rang while I was in bed
but I wasn't really interested in what my brother said
he said front page front page front PAGE HOLY CRAP
and I was like DOOOOD I'm takin' a frikkin nap

C-Am-C-F
But then I realized and I ran to my laptop and I stared at in in shock

F-G-C
Holycrap I got featured on youtube

I stared at my face, staring back at me
my eyes were wide my mouth agape I clicked on it to see
and I felt so elated my vid was highly rated
Though my pronunciation debated I was happy I created

Something so many people would see
And laugh at me

And that's what it's like to get featured on youtube.

BRIDGE
F-C-G
You know I always hoped this would happen
And I thought that song might be our chance

Next [F]thing I [G]knew [C]30,000 [F]people
had [F]watched me do my [G]happy [C]dance.

I want to hug every girl and guy that clicked on subscribe
It was watched over seven hundred thousand times
your comments got me to the most discussed page
even if 20% of you said I was lame or gay

But now I know, I'll never be that famous
Ever again

I just want to say thank you
and I want to say thank you to youtube

 Intro


(Brotherhood 2.0 intro)
(singing) Good morning John it's Wednesday, August 15th!
(speaking) That's not my song, my song is something about something that happened to me a few weeks ago that sort of changed my life, my life is different now. I started writing this song back then and now it is done.

 Song (0:25)


One Tuesday the phone rang while I was in bed,
But I wasn't really interested in what my brother said.
He said front page front page front PAGE HOLY CRAP
And I was like, "Dude, I'm takin' a freaking nap!"

But then I realized and I ran to my laptop And I stared at it in shock:
Holy crap I got featured on YouTube.

I stared at my face, staring back at me,
My eyes were wide, my mouth agape I clicked on me to see.
And I felt so elated my vid was highly rated
My pronunciation was debated but I was happy I created
Something so many people would see
And laugh at me

And that's what it's like to get featured on YouTube.

You know I always hoped this would happen.
And I thought that song might be our chance.

Next thing I knew 30,000 people
watched me do my happy dance.
Yeah they watched me do my happy dance.

I want to hug every girl and guy that clicked on subscribe.
That video was watched seven hundred thousand times.
And your comments, they got me to the most discussed page,
Even if 20% of them said I was lame or gay.

But now I know, I'll never be that famous
Ever again.

I just want to say thank you
and I want to say thank you to you
and I wanna say thank you to YouTube.

(speaking) Sorry I didn't have time to write a song about you eating a blenderized Happy Meal because that, I'm sure, would have been a very good song. But, I just wanted to say thank you to YouTube.

 Big News (3:08)


Big news, the world that according to YouTube is this big and that is as big as it can get, that is how big this news is.

YouTube has made us partners, and I'm not entirely sure what that means but there is an orientation session that John and I are going to be sitting in on.

I don't even know how to describe because I don't know what it is, but I know that it's a big deal. The sort of like famous YouTubers are partners and they're making us partners too. So maybe we'll become famous YouTubers too! Maybe. Probably not.

Really, how could we not be happy with our already levels of fame. I mean there's being famous but then there's being famous to cool people. And right now, all the people who think that we're cool are really cool. So that's way better than being famous with like everybody anyway.

John, I look forward to you finding a cat to lick. I'll see you tomorrow.
